The Hope/KFGM Story
Hope Deliverance Tabernacle Ministries was established on July 8, 1984 by the late Apostle Michael A Mitchell and Dr. Sharon Mitchell. The Ministry first service was held at Virrick Park in Coconut Grove, Florida. As membership increased, the Ministry moved to two other locations in the Perrine area, prior to establishment of its current facility in the South Miami Heights area.
The heartbeat of Hope Deliverance Tabernacle Ministries has been to serve people and to teach each person how to develop an intimate relationship with a loving and caring Father. Our name suggests that we are the “House of Prayer for Everyone.” Upon visiting Hope Ministries in the early ninety’s Apostle Luis Greenup was so moved by the spirit of excellence in the Ministry, that he said the letters “HOPE”
stood for “Helping Other People Excel.”
During the early years, Hope Ministries made its mark in the community through the Outreach Food Ministry. Each week our Outreach Ministry would prepare and distribute brown bagged lunches in Coconut Grove. To date, we have provided bagged groceries containing fruits, vegetables, canned goods, bakery items and so much more to approximately 2400 individuals’ per month throughout the Miami South Dade community.
On July 11, 2009 we celebrated our 25th Church Anniversary and Elder Andre and Minister Kim Sanders were installed as Pastors. On December 6, 2009, Pastors Andre and Kim Sanders were ordained by Pastors Willie and Denise Johnson of Orlando Faith International Ministries, Orlando, Florida. Now as we are celebrating our 26th Church Anniversary under the leadership of Pastors Andre and Kim Sanders, Hope Deliverance Tabernacle Ministries continues to make rich deposits from the Word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit into the lives of His people. Pastor Sanders’ have a fervent desire to, build the church, reveal the Father and make sons and daughters.
